Jolly Roger Ares GamesWhat better way to show your buddy you trust him then by joining him on a high sea adventure filled with swashbuckling and treasure. What better way to make sure you get all the booty than to start a mutiny against your buddy and make him walk the plank?

No one said a pirate’s life is easy.

Ares Games lets you test the waters of a pirate’s life in a new card game called Jolly Roger – The game of Piracy and Mutiny. In it, players sail around to different locations, fighting, looting, and burying treasure.

With four to 10 players, one person is the captain and makes all of the important decisions when it comes to where to attack and when to cut losses. Along the way, stack your hand with the right cards to protect in battle and squirrel away gold.

At any moment, a player can call for a mutiny against the captain and take over as the head honcho. Will you join the mutiny or fight for your captain?

The player with the highest amount of gold at the end of the game is the ultimate pirate and the winner. Jolly Roger – The Game of Piracy and Mutany is expected to ship this July and will retail for $20.

Ares games has two new games coming this year, one being its first card game.

Jolly Roger – The game of Piracy & Mutiny is a card game for 4 – 10 players. It’s fast, quick to learn, and apparently can get pretty rowdy. The players are pirates in search of booty. One player is the captain and makes decisions for the best of the ship, but other players can mutiny if they disagree with those decisions. It’s a cooperative game where sometimes cooperation isn’t in the cards. (see what I did there?) Jolly Roger launches a new line of card games for Ares.

Odyssey – Wrath of Poseidon is a Euro-styled deduction game for 2 – 5 players. One player plays Poseidon, and the others are navigators in search of a Sacred island. It’s Poseidon’s job to make it so the navigators never find the island, while the players desperately fight against what the sea god throws at them in order to find their prize.

Both games are due for release at Gen Con 2015.
